Mulithull Show Coming to La Grande-Motte

01-LEAD-Dominique-David-2-Recovered

After a year without boat shows, 2021 proved to be a blockbuster summer and fall for events around the globe, and the International Mulithull Show is looking to continue that trend in 2022.

First held in 2010, the show, which takes place in La Grand-Motte, France, on the shores of the Mediterranean, is about one thing and one thing only—multihulls, in all their forms.

Since its inception, the show has served as a showcase for the latest in multihull design, and the 2022 event, which takes place April 20-24, looks to be no different, with a number of debuts already planned, including those by C-Cat, Bali and Catana.

The event also provides the perfect venue for multihull aficionados from around the world to compare and share ideas—the more cutting-edge, the better. With this in mind, the 2022 show will include what organizers are calling a “Multihull Club Design” area, showcasing the latest in multihull innovation. The show will also play host to a range of equipment suppliers exhibiting everything from deck hardware to sails, engines and services. As in years past, the event is expected to draw exhibitors and visitors from around the world, making it an international affair in the truest sense of the word—a gathering of the multihull tribes not to be missed.

Chartering: Swan Song in the BVI

Joseph Conrad once wrote, “The sea never changes.” And while this may or not be true, something most definitely not open for debate is the fact we sailors, “wrapped in mystery,” as Conrad put it, are continually changing—whether we like it or not. I found myself thinking these ...read more

Boat Review: Fountaine-Pajot Aura 51

If you can sell more than 150 catamarans off-plan before the resin has even hit the fiberglass, you must be doing something right. Despite costing around $1.1 million once fitted out and on the water, Fountaine-Pajot’s new 51 has done just that. The French yard has been at it ...read more
